"White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany had some harsh criticism for Nancy Pelosi and the Dems in regards to extended enhanced unemployment benefits."
About the video:
"Speaking on Fox News, McEnany stated: “Speaker Pelosi has been fundamentally unserious this whole time.”
She continued: “She doesn’t want to give him (President Trump) a win before the election, and shame on Nancy Pelosi for not helping unemployed Americans.”
McEnany continued: “The Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Secretary Steven Mnuchin have been on the Hill, offering proposals, giving them more than they asked for in school funding to which she would reject.”
I just hope that this harsh criticism from the Press Secretary can get everyone back on track so that we can get another stimulus package soon.
Meanwhile, some economists have questioned the findings of those weekly and monthly jobs reports that we talk about every week on this channel.
We’ve explained how economic statistics are unprepared to measure an economy that has struggled like ours during 2020, but are the reports accurately explaining the true amount of Americans without a job?
Some leading economists believe that these figures could be off by not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of unemployed citizens!
With outdated systems, fraudulent claims and a whole new program (PUA) to deal with, Heidi Shierholz, director of policy for the Economic Policy Institute stated: “This does really underscore just how important it is that we make key investments in our data infrastructure, because now we know what it feels like when we don’t have good data.”
As a whole, the United States does not have a unified unemployment system.
Instead, each state controls their unemployment and there are 53 (including D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) different programs instead of 1 unified effort.
All of these factors, including initial and continuing claims, lead experts to believe that we could be way off on our estimates of how many struggling Americans are without employment.
Finally, as of Monday, over $35 billion of the $44 billion in FEMA funds have been spent on President Trump’s weekly $300/$400 LWa unemployment benefits.
That means that nearly 80% of the money has already gone out to eligible unemployment claimants.
I’m hearing that the following states are currently disbursing LWA funds to unemployment claimants: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Rhode Island, Utah and Wyoming.
I hope that everyone in these states can get this additional stimulus boost to help make the rest of the year a little easier.
If you still have not applied for unemployment benefits in your state, you could be left in the cold if you don’t act quickly!
Get your state benefits, plus the extra $1,800 or $2,400 unemployment checks from the Feds, just by explaining that you’ve been out of work due to that thing out there.
To all the gig-workers, self employed, independent contractors or 1099 workers, the PUA is not your standard unemployment insurance, and even includes side hustles and part time gigs.
Check with your state’s unemployment and PUA guidelines, tell them the truth, and get the money that you deserve in your bank account within days of approval!
Is your state paying $300 or $400 LWA unemployment benefits? Let me know in the comments below!"
